Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade is not a highlight, it actually received a slightly more favorable score in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B- for this area, which is not bad. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 2.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below the national average. Although this nursing home ranked poorly in terms of the quantity of nursing care available, it actually performed admirably in a few of our quality measures. In fact, it was above average in two of the major statistics we look at, with good scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These metrics are reliable measures of the quality of nursing care offered since many falls and bed sores are preventable.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B- in this category. Our short-term care grades are likely more meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This place performed decently in this area, with 49.1 percent of its residents returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in that category. Facilities that don't score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the data points we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 93.85246 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 1.83 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric wasn't bad since it had more complex patients.
